We took a last minute trip to Destin for a dive and had a great experience. We have visited Destin many times but for some reason never dove there. Very glad we decided to make a weekend trip just to dive. The service was great by all the staff, boat crew, and dive master Ray. The staff made the experience... More

I've been diving with Anna and crew for 20+ years. I've always called ahead from Tennessee and booked our dives, then stopped by on arrival in town to touch base. Only dove 3 days this week due to limited demand. (Hey it is mid October) 2 days I had my Jr. Diver and she requires limited depth due to age.... More

All the folks here are very helpful and will assist you with all your diving needs. We have dove S Florida and Caribbean; Emerald is definitely top of the list! Mark is awesome and Tom should give you a raise :-)

My spouse had to finish her scuba certification. The whole staff there was so attentive and made it such a positive experience we just cannot say enough good things about them. Patrick even took her out early to finish a couple things that were overlooked by a previous instructor (not of this company) so she could finish what she needed.... More

Located on the right side of Hwy-98 just east of the bridge. We had a great conversation with the people there to set up a dive for the coming week. Very honest about the conditions & listened to what we wanted to do & work with us to make the arrangements.

My husband and I rented the snorkeling gear for my birthday. Before arriving, Mrs. Anna took great care of me. Upon arrival, we were greeted by Patrick. Mr. Patrick was amazing. He even gave us a call when I accidentally left my purse at their establishment! Thanks for making my birthday memorable!

This has to be one of the nicest dive shops I've ever visited. They have done an excellent job crafting the shop with everything you might need to go diving or snorkeling. I knew from the moment I called the shop that this would be the shop for us to dive with. All staff that we came into contact with... More

For the first time in all our visits to Destin, we decided to try snorkeling as a family. We booked our day only to have Anna (one of the owners !) call to ask if we could reschedule. The storm earlier in the week had stirred up the water. They could have easily taken us out and not bothered to... More

5+ stars. Above and beyond service and experience. The professionalism and confidence in my scuba was immediate right when I walked through the door - everything was clearly explained, my dive master introduced himself to me right away (I opted to pay a nominal extra to dive with a dive master). He is with Air Force special forces night diving... More
